What is microdosing?

Created with Sketch.

Microdosing is a practice of integrating small doses of psychedelics, such as psilocybin truffles or -mushrooms, into your weekly routine with the aim of improving cognitive functioning or psychological wellbeing in some way.

Is microdosing safe?

Created with Sketch.

Microdosing is a safe practice, but it may be illegal in some places. It is important to be aware of the laws in your specific location and avoid any illegal activities. While there are no clinical research studies on microdosing in humans, studies on larger doses of psilocybin-containing truffles have shown that these substances are extremely safe. However, the long-term effects of frequent microdosing are still unknown. As a result, it is recommended to microdose for no more than two months at a time.

It’s important to note that microdosing does not have the same risks as taking larger doses of psychedelics, such as experiencing a “bad trip” or intense psychedelic effects. Microdosing is a safe and effective way to experiment with psychedelics in a comfortable and controlled environment.

Taking a microdose is the ideal way to be introduced to psychedelics safely and comfortably.

Who should avoid microdosing?

Created with Sketch.

It is important to understand that while psilocybin can be a transformative and profound experience for many people, it may not be suitable for everyone. There are certain situations and mental health conditions where caution or avoidance of psilocybin is recommended. These include:

Mental Health Disorders

Individuals with a history of mental health disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, or any other severe mental illness should avoid psilocybin. The psychedelic effects of psilocybin can potentially exacerbate symptoms or lead to unpredictable reactions.

Deep Depressive Feelings

If you are currently experiencing deep depressive feelings or are in a vulnerable emotional state, it’s advisable to refrain from psilocybin use. While psilocybin has shown promise in treating depression, its effects can be intense, and the experience may not be appropriate during a period of emotional vulnerability.

Medication Interactions

Some medications may interact with psilocybin, potentially causing adverse effects or reducing the effectiveness of the medication. It’s crucial to consult with a healthcare professional if you are taking any prescription medications.

Pregnancy and Lactation

Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should avoid psilocybin use due to the potential risks it may pose to the developing fetus or infant.

For individuals in any of these categories who are interested in exploring psilocybin, it is strongly recommended to consult with a qualified healthcare professional. A healthcare provider can assess your specific situation, provide guidance on potential risks and benefits, and determine if there are safer alternatives or therapeutic approaches. Your wellbeing and safety are paramount, and open communication with a healthcare professional is a responsible and essential step.

What are the benefits of microdosing?

Created with Sketch.

People microdose for many reasons; ranging from increasing their productivity and creativity to finding relief from pain, or to combat specific medical complaints. However microdosing is not a magic bullet but a tool you can use to accelerate your state of awareness.

Note: It is important to recognize that greater benefits are experienced when microdosing is done with proper preparation, intention, and integration. The help of a professional microdosing coach can certainly aid in that process. 

When is microdosing not recommended?

Created with Sketch.
  • When you are younger than 18 years old
  • When you are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • In case of a mental or physical condition and/or illness
  • If you have color blindness
  • In extreme cases of situations in your life that are beyond your control (for instance: grief)
  • In combination with alcohol or other drugs
  • In combination with Lithium carbonate
  • In combination with Tramadol
  • When in the process of tapering off from antidepressants or anti-anxiety medication

Is microdosing addictive?

Created with Sketch.

Microdosing is not addictive. Even though it has been proven that truffles do not cause any physical addiction, you should remain alert to your personal relationship with microdosing. The positive effects can be quite appealing, whether microdosing is mentally addictive depends entirely on how consciously you use it.

How should I take a microdose?

Created with Sketch.

If you swallow the truffles whole, the microdose will be gradually released throughout the day. You can also chew the truffles, mix them in a smoothie or cut them into little pieces to make tea. The effects of the microdose can be more intense for the body when consumed on an empty stomach.

How much should I take for my first microdose?

Created with Sketch.

The single microdose strips contain 1 gram each. For some people, 1 gram may already be too strong for one microdose. Therefore, we recommend that you start off with a smaller dose of 0.25 gram to 0.5 gram (¼ or ½ of a single strip dose). This way you can gradually sense how your body reacts.

Note: It’s recommended  to start with a low dose and gradually build up over time as you become more confident. The goal of microdosing is to find your ideal personal dosage (i.e. your "sweet spot”) within the 4 first times of microdosing.

What are magic truffles?

Created with Sketch.

The microdosing truffles are called “sclerotia” A sclerotium is a thickening of the mycelium, which, as an organ, is used by a mushroom to store its resources. The truffles look a bit like small nuts.

​​How long will the truffles stay fresh?

Created with Sketch.

When the strips of microdoses are still sealed in the strip, you can keep them fresh for 2 months. Once opened, truffles stay fresh for up to 2 weeks if you store them dry and cold.

Should the microdoses be kept refrigerated?

Created with Sketch.

To maintain the effects and potency of fresh truffles, it’s best to store your truffles refrigerated. When vacuum sealed, they will remain good for up to two months.

The storage of the truffles requires a temperature between 2 and 4 degrees Celsius.

Avoid freezing and leave the strips in their packaging, as the refrigerator can collect excessive moisture.

Is microdosing safe?

Created with Sketch.

Yes, microdosing is completely safe. The riskiest thing about microdosing is its potentially illegal nature. Always be aware of your local laws and don’t undertake any illegal activities. There are no clinical research studies on microdosing in humans. However, clinical studies of larger doses of psilocybin containing truffles have shown that these substances are extremely safe. What remains unknown is what effects frequent microdosing could have on the body. This is why we recommend microdosing for no longer than two months at a time.

Note: with microdosing, there is no risk of having a “bad trip” or experiencing intense psychedelic effects. Taking a microdose is the ideal way to be introduced to psychedelics safely and comfortably.

Is microdosing legal?

Created with Sketch.

Microdosing is not necessarily illegal. Several countries allow the cultivation and/or purchase of psilocybin truffles. We do not condone microdosing where it is against the law, as there can be penalties.

Why is it recommended to only microdose for 1 to 2 months at a time?

Created with Sketch.

Psychedelics build up a tolerance very quickly. So when you use it too long, it loses its power. After 2 to 4 weeks your receptors will be reset and you can start again.

Note: Microdosing is foremost about gaining insights during your microdosing period and integrating these insights into your life. You could say a successful microdosing journey is when you no longer “need” it as support. It is useful to look back on your microdosing journey and reflect on what you have learned, what insights did you integrate already and what do you still need to work on. 

Can psilocybin be detected in a drug test?

Created with Sketch.

Psilocybin and its metabolites are not included in most standard drug screens; however, they are sometimes included in extended drug screens.

What are the possible disadvantages of microdosing?

Created with Sketch.

Out of the more than 1850 reports Dr. James Fadiman and Sophia Korb have analyzed for their published paper “Might Microdosing Psychedelics Be Safe and Beneficial? An Initial Exploration”, 75 people (less than 4%) expressed not having a positive experience with microdosing. 

The potential negative or unpleasant effects of microdosing mentioned in these reports include:

  • Fatigue – potentially because of a change in physical needs or as an indicator to address underlying emotional and/or physical needs
  • Tolerance (needing more of the substance each time to get the same effect) – It has not been scientifically proven yet, but Fadiman’s findings show that people report tolerance when microdosing every day instead of following one of the established  microdosing protocols
  • Dealing with changes in your consciousness and your sensitivity can be challenging
  • Other risks of microdosing include nausea, headaches, or increased anxiety

Can you microdose and drive a car?

Created with Sketch.

We recommend not to drive a car when you take a microdose for the first time. If the microdose comes on too strong, you have taken too much, and you should not take part in traffic. Otherwise, you should be perfectly fine driving a car or other motorized vehicles while microdosing.

Can you microdose and work out?

Created with Sketch.

Microdosing can be a great attribute to your workout, as it can boost your cognitive functions which can result in better sports performances. For example: you become more aware of your own body and can thus find a better pace in your workout routine.

Can you microdose and drink alcohol?

Created with Sketch.

It is possible to microdose and drink alcohol, although we do not recommend it as the alcohol can lower the beneficial effects of microdosing.

When should you stop microdosing?

Created with Sketch.

While microdosing can act as a catalyst to make you more self-aware, more creative, and more productive, its use also has its limits. As with any mind-enhancing substance, it should be used consciously and responsibly, and in moderation.

Can I microdose during pregnancy?

Created with Sketch.

There is currently no clinical research showing that psychedelics can be harmful during pregnancy, whether it’s about pregnancy complications for the mother, or about the baby’s brain or development. The medical literature, however, suggests that minimal damage may occur. Thus, the decision to use substances remains one for you to take as an individual.

Can I microdose if I have ADHD?

Created with Sketch.

Although there’s no clinical proof of the medicinal effect of psychedelics, multiple experts state that microdosing can be beneficial for people diagnosed with ADHD or ADD.

Can I microdose while on antibiotics?

Created with Sketch.

As with alcohol or other drugs, it is not advised to combine microdosing with antibiotics.

How long after a high dose experience can I start microdosing?

Created with Sketch.

After a high dose journey, it is recommended to take a break from microdosing, until the 'afterglow' of the high dose has faded. Most people experience a feeling of a reset or being ‘reborn’ after a session. This afterglow can last up to 2 to 4 weeks. So after approximately 2 weeks you could start with microdosing. 

Can microdosing be combined with medication or supplements?

Created with Sketch.

Many people wonder if microdosing can be combined with medication. This is one of the most frequently asked questions for researchers and experts in this field. To effectively answer that question, Dr. James Fadiman and his colleague Sophia Korb compiled a list of medications, supplements, and drugs that until now are known not to cause any adverse side effects when combined with microdosing. 

It is important to:

  • Always consult your doctor first if you plan to combine, stop, or phase out medications
  • Remember: no one is currently knowledgeable enough in the field of microdosing to be able to advise you on the interactions of microdosing and your medications. If you want to taper off medications because you suspect that microdosing is a better alternative, always consult with your doctor and thoroughly research the pros and cons.


If I make tea of the psilocybin truffles, will the strength decrease?

Created with Sketch.

Brewing tea from psilocybin truffles can slightly alter the potency and the experience, although it doesn’t necessarily decrease the strength. Here are some key points to consider:

Speed and Intensity of Onset: Making tea can cause the effects to come on faster and appear a bit more intense due to the quick absorption of psilocybin, although the overall duration may be slightly shorter compared to consuming them raw​​.

Heat sensitivity: It’s crucial not to steep the truffles in boiling water as the heat can degrade the psilocybin, potentially diminishing the potency. It’s advisable to let the water cool down a bit before adding the truffles or mushrooms​​.

User experiences: Some users have found that tea made from psilocybin mushrooms hits them harder and faster, making it seem more potent. The preparation method, such as whether to put the truffles in boiling water, or to boil the water first and then add the truffles, as well as the steeping duration, can also influence the potency and experience​​​.

Degrading psilocybin: There’s mention from a chemist that tea can degrade psilocybin mushrooms to some extent, which may suggest a possible decrease in potency if not done correctly​​.

In conclusion, the preparation method and the temperature at which the tea is brewed are important factors that can influence the potency of psilocybin when making tea from truffles. It’s advisable to avoid using boiling water directly on the truffles to preserve the psilocybin content.

My psilocybin truffles have a strange color in one of the portions. Can I use it?

Created with Sketch.

Absolutely, the discoloration poses no threat. It’s a characteristic of a natural product exhibiting various hues. Should washing the truffles slightly remove the brown protective layer, a color change will be noticeable. The green-blue coloration represents psilocybin, the active compound. Upon exposure to oxygen, a minor oxidation of the truffles occurs.

How much psilocybin does 1 gram of psilocybin truffles contain?

Created with Sketch.

The amount of psilocybin in 1 gram of psilocybin truffles can vary, but a common range provided is between 0.75 and 1.75 milligrams (mg) of psilocybin per gram of fresh truffles​​​. It’s worth mentioning that the psilocybin content can fluctuate based on several factors including the species and strain of the truffle, the conditions under which they were grown, and their freshness or dryness at the time of measurement.

Can microdosing heal my depression or burn-out?

Created with Sketch.

Microdosing is not typically a cure for depression or burn-outs, but rather serves as a supportive tool in one’s healing journey. It’s crucial to recognize that you are the central figure in this process, with microdosing acting as a catalyst that highlights areas requiring attention. Understanding this dynamic can empower individuals to alleviate depression through proactive engagement, albeit microdosing is not a panacea for all issues.

Approaching microdosing with a grounded perspective enables individuals to unlock their potential, thereby significantly aiding the healing process.

I don't feel anything from the microdosing truffles. How do I find my sweet spot?

Created with Sketch.

It’s important to acknowledge that the effects of microdosing psilocybin truffles can be subtle and may vary from individual to individual. Finding your “sweet spot” requires a methodical approach. Here are steps to help you find the right dose that works for you:

Start low and go slow:
Begin with a low dose. A common starting point is 0.5 grams of fresh truffles.

Gradually increase the dose in small increments (e.g., 0.1 or 0.2 grams) every dosing day.

Maintain a consistent schedule:
Follow a regular microdosing protocol, such as one day on, and one day off.

Consistency will help you better evaluate the effects over time.

Track your experiences:

Keep a journal to note any changes in mood, cognition, or physical sensations. Document the dose, time of day, and any other relevant factors like sleep quality or dietary changes.

Mind your diet and lifestyle:
Maintain a balanced diet and stay hydrated.

Exercise and adequate sleep can also impact your response to microdosing.

Consult with a microdosing coach:
If you are part of a guided program, share your observations with your coach.

Experienced coaches and guides can provide valuable insights based on your feedback.

Patience and observation:
It may take some time to notice the benefits of microdosing.

Give yourself several weeks to observe the effects and adjust the dose accordingly.

Engage in reflective practices:
Meditation, mindfulness, or other reflective practices can enhance your awareness of subtle changes.

Remember, the goal of microdosing is to find the lowest effective dose that provides the desired benefits without any unwanted effects. It’s a personal journey of exploration and fine-tuning to find what works best for you.

I want to travel with my microdosing. Can I take it with me inside and outside the EU?

Created with Sketch.

Please check the legal status of microdosing psychedelics here:

We don't recommend traveling with psychedelics as it can be confiscated by customs and you can get a fine, or punishment. 

Are microdosing products legal in my country? Is it safe to ship it to my country?

Created with Sketch.

Because of (frequently changing) rules regarding microdosing products abroad, full responsibility for the purchase of these products lies with the customer. Before ordering our products from abroad, the customer must ensure that the goods can be legally imported into the country to which the order must be sent.

(Truffles are legal in the Netherlands and can therefore be sent to all EU countries under the Mutual Recognition of Goods Principle of the European Commission. This EU treaty says that if a product is legal in one EU country, it is also legal to sell and ship to all other EU countries. However, it is technically still possible for individual EU countries, states, and local jurisdictions to ban all kinds of products. Therefore, checking the current legal status of our product in your jurisdiction is your own responsibility.)
